RAGTIME THE MUSICAL
Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on the novel RAGTIME by E.L. Doctorow
In a striking, bold and ambitious new production, triple Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Best Musical Revival 2010, 2011, 2012) adds a contemporary twist to this powerful musical.
As the strains of ragtime music are heard on an old record player, a father tells his son a story; a story of hope set at the turn of the 20th century; of a Harlem pianist, a white middle-class family and a Latvian immigrant, whose dreams of a better world shape their destiny.
‘Visually imposing’ (Evening Standard) and ‘staged with brilliance’ (Guardian).
Performed by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LIMITED on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of New York.Tweet #OATragtime
